Okey, so this is what happened:

I had a glass of water near my laptop and clumsy as I was I managed to spill alot of water on it. The laptop was running and I tried to shut it off as fast as I could, but it didn't work, it just started to log out of windows. Then I had a nice BSOD. I've experienced water leaks in my desktop comp several times(watercooling) and my comp always works after I clean it up and dry everything off. But this laptop just won't open! How am I supposed to dry anything that's sealed shut? I got it like 90 percent open by losing the screws. But there is some part on the right hand side that still won't budge. Can anyone please help me open this sucker or point me to a manual of how to open a laptop? I'd definately appreciate any help I can get. :(

The model is a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M 7400. I'll never drink near my comp again!

EDIT: Tried turning it on and it worked. I got as far as the desktop before it bsodded again. Then the screen didn't work, tried drying it some more and the screen started working again. Then bsod again. I guess it's not 100% dry yet, so I should probably try to dry it some more and see how it feels tomorrow.

Well I tried blow-drying it, now I think I'll wait for an hour or two and see if that did anything. It's late in the evening here 10pm, so it's not so warm outside anymore and tomorrow we'll have rain according to the weather forcast. :( Thanks for the suggestion though.

The water here is almost as clean as distilled water anyways, but drinking distilled water would solve some problems! :D

EDIT: My lappy is working again, for now. :)
